Anyone local have a new oil seal for the bearing in the rear rim? Suzuki Brampton does not have any and won't be able to get it until late next week. I was hoping to ride this weekend as I just ripped up my old one taking it off to swap it into the new rim.....

Any leads or if someone has one in their stable.......:redfaced:

Why did you have to remove your oil seal to swap? I would have thought that the new rim would have had one. I think that once they are removed, they are basically trash.

The 9 rim I bought was used and the seal was gone. I tried to remove mine but of course I trashed it.

I called around today and finally found a seal supplier in oakville and they hooked me up with one no charge, so my 90 is now sportin' a 240 rear:bigthumbsup:

I think I like the way it rides better than the 200. Sure it doesn't turn in as quick, but I kinda like the way it handles a little better. Also, I think the increase in rim size is better suited to the gearing on the bike. All in all it was worth it..

Post some pics! we want to see the finished job.:bigthumbsup:

What did suzuki want for the new seal?? might be helpful to post the oakville seal supplier's info for other guys like myself! I have the wheels off from time to time, as well, and would be nice to know this info.

Suzuki wanted 9 bucks for it, but the problem was it would not arrive until late next week, and I wanted to ride this long weekend.

The seal supplier I got it from is http://www.daemar.com/

They said they don't normally deal with the public, but if you buy a minimum of $35 they will. I was going to buy 35 bucks worth of oil seals just to get one, then the sales guy saw I was desperated and tossed 1 over the counter and said "try this sample". I smiled and thanked him. Good guys.

She's done! Not the best pictures but I managed to snap a couple with the blackberry. Definately worth the effort and cost in my opinion. Now I need to lower it and do a similar tail set up to yours tibiboy1. I like the clean look your ride has
